The 2021 season has been excellent for Shohei Ohtani. His stats include hitting 46 home runs, 100 RBI’s, and stealing 26 bases. He also has a 9-2 record on the mound along with a 3.18 ERA and 156 strikeouts. As a result of this wonderful performance, it's not surprising he'll be the one gracing the cover of the upcoming MLB The Show 22.
